Sex Trafficking Survivor; Cyntoia Brown Ordered To Serve A Mandatory 51 Year Prison Sentence Before Potentially Being Released!
#Cousins; do you remember the story of #CyntoiaBrown ? Last year both #Rihanna and #KimKardashian took to social media to shed light on this young girl’s horrific past. Hoping to bring fourth awareness of a public injustice. Unfortunately the pain and questions we all had fell upon death ears.
Brown is currently serving a lifetime sentence for the first degree murder of 43 year old #JohnnyAllen, she committed when she was 16 years old. According to #CBSnews Brown’s defense team states; she was a young and abused sex trafficking victim who feared for her life and had no other choice, but prosecutors argue that she shot Allen with the intentions of robbing him.
Sources state that even though the Supreme Court has ruled against “ life without parole sentences for juveniles “ , on Thursday #Tennessee Supreme Court has argued that Brown could possibly be freed with parole only after serving 51 years within prison. There has been no final decisions made as of yet, the ruling has been forwarded to the federal appellate for review.
